One of the way how to get some more pictures of Prague is to get on one of many trams (17, 22, 18..) and let it take you around the city. Well, unfortunately the trams are not as safe way of traveling as they might to seem. Be aware of highly frequent pick pockets gangs. Especialy the tram station Malostranske namestí is known for its´ not wanted passengers. It is not for to give up the trams but always be aware of your belongings! Have a great time!!

MONEY EXCHANGE - Before you change the money always ask: "How much Czech koruna would I get for this exact amount ?" Then take your time, count it well and then proceed the exchanging. Many people were CHEATED in Prague by the "small writings" at the information boards. One client lost this way 200 USD. When he wanted to stop the transaction and return the money they refused. Our guide came for a help - 3 hours arguments, no result. We called the police - no result. !!!!!!!!! BE AWARE OF: Chequepoint - http://www.chequepoint.cz

The main thing to remember when visiting Prague is that it's a big city. When walking though crowded areas, keep your hand on your purse/wallet. If you need to exchange money, a bank is always safest. Use the bankomats with the added green light safety feature & cover your hand as you enter your code. Avoid Chequepoint(the logo with the red flower in the name)They're not a reputable business. The four of us spent 9 days there without incident.

I will Echo what Jill and Mark said...

It's a big city... If you go walking around the tourist areas of NYC, Philly, L.A., or Chicago, you run the risk of getting robbed.

Use your head and protect your valuables and no harm will come...

Daydream about the sights and allow yourself to get distracted from your belongings and you are at risk..

It's a totally safe city. Spent 4 days there - LOVED IT.

Not a warning but a recommendation... Don't bother with exchanging money locally. Instead, simply seek out any of the numerous ATMs and deal directly with your bank. You'll get the best exchange rates, even if your bank charges "International Fees". (You can minimize the impact of these fees by withdrawing larger amounts of cash). At the airport, exchange just enough currency into koronas to get you into town, then use the ATMs in the city (airport exchange rates aren't the best, even using the automated exchange machines).

This is a general recommendation - it's valid almost anywhere.
